Azam Baki: MACC investigators to decide request by Tun M's two sons to further extend asset declaration deadline

KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Azam Baki is leaving it to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigators to decide on the request by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's two sons for another round of extension of the deadline to declare their assets.

The MACC chief commissioner stated that, to his knowledge, the duo has not yet declared their assets.

It was previously reported that Tan Sri Mokhzani Mahathir and his brother, Mirzan, were supposed to declare their assets on May 25 and May 29, respectively.

Previously, on April 26, it was reported that Mirzan and Mokhzani had been given a 30-day extension by the MACC to declare their assets.

Prior to this, the two had been given an extension by the MACC in February.

On Jan 18, MACC had summoned Mirzan, the eldest of Dr Mahathir's children to facilitate an ongoing investigation into his wealth and issued a notice under Section 36(1)(b) of the MACC Act 2009 to declare his assets, all movable and immovable assets, whether inside or outside the country, within 30 days.

His younger brother, Mokhzani, is being investigated under the MACC Act 2009 and the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 and was also required to declare his assets to the graft buster within the same stipulated period.

On Feb 6, Azam said MACC had not received any response from either Mirzan and Mokhzani. He had said the duo could face prosecution if they fail to comply with the notice issued by the commission.
